Genuinely surprised at the Bernie Mac voiceover and emphasis on it being The Beginning, I'd assumed it'd be carefully promoted and made so if it was an unexpected hit it and sequels could fit into the planned reboot. Instead it looks like TF6 hasn't been outright cancelled, they're waiting to see how this does before making a decision.

Also surprised there's no hint of when it's set, was expecting them to milk the Stranger Things vibe (they could have played Don't Stop Bee-leaving at least).

Looks fun and the much needed scaling back the series needed.

I watched this trailer twice last night and had a genuine tear in my eye. I was a big fan of all five Bay films, even at their dumbest I enjoyed the action and spectacle, and I stand by my assertions that there is a lot more heart and thought to those films than people give them credit for.

That said, I am very fond of the idea of a smaller, sweeter little story akin to the first film. Bee looks like a really cute cross between his classic cartoon design and the modern look, the relationship with the human looks sweet and I'm all for it.

Cor, you know what? I bloody love transformers.

Yeah, it seems to be a smaller scale version of the 2007 movie. Teenager meets transforming car, then larger conflict with decepticons and an antagonistic human group. It works.

*Beast Wars is in the future, in the past.
**Hearts of Steel was a period piece, come to think of it.

The main figure for the film isn't bad at all, surprised the yellow works. Replace the head (or even just paint the alt head) and it's not a terrible update on the original either.

MPM7 Bumblebee.... IN MOTION.

Also, MPM7 is Bumblebee. Also also, this is awesome.

Yeah, me too. I've watched the two new trailers a few times, and I'm starting to get hyped. Whole lot of goodness in there, especially with the designs on Cybertron.

Here's apparently trailer #2:

Trailer #2

At the same time, I really don't want to be let down. Again.
